Granted this was another cruise ship shore excursion, it was very nicely done. The views were stunning and the food was amazing. I am not a very big fish fan, but you can not help but love the taste of Alaskan halibut. When it is fried to perfection it is even better. The tour was great I wish it were... More

A very well run tour! We were so glad we picked this tour. We got to drive the mule up the mountain and it's just awe inspiring up there. The views are breathtaking and the weather changes dramatic. Lots of wild blueberries to pick if you are so inclined!! And the lunch on the way down was the best fish... More

Our Takshanuk Mountain Trail tour we took was the last tour of the season. Normally, many operators and guides are tired of the tourist spawning season at the very end. BUT, our operators and guides were relaxed, fun and full of good humor. We enjoyed it and obviously they enjoyed sharing what they knew. We got to use the 4x4... More

This is a great activity for young or old. They move slowly up the mountain so it is easy going and safe. I have a bad back and did great. It rained on us (again) but that only made it memorable. They provided nice blankets for using while traveling that kept us dry. But dont wear your best shoes, they... More

This excursion was everything we had hoped for and more. Even thought it was raining lightly we still had a great time. We were given a plastic lined blanket and a rain poncho which was just enough to keep us dry and warm. The mules were easy to drive up and down the switchback roads. The scenery was beautiful. Unfortunately... More

This was a great excursion from our cruise. The 4 x 4 wasn't a rough ride, and the open top was a great way to see the view - we could see forever. The guides were super nice (Angie - you rock!) and Christie made us the best meal I've had in a long time - and I had just... More

Booked this excursion for our day in Skagway during our Alaskan cruise. What a great day!! Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The Kawasaki Mules were in top notch shape, started easy, ran good, and brakes worked well as you will need them coming back down. You get to drive the 4 x 4 up and down the mountain. The... More
